Windows 7: need help with partitions

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
need help with partitions

reinstalling windows 7 on laptop - the disk has 2 partitions, C (big) and D (small)

mistakenly put win7 on the D drive and now it has run out of space.
I would like to put win7 on the c drive

I have copied all the D files to the C drive. I want to delete the D partition but not sure how to proceed while booted from the D drive.

It also seems I cant boot from C in bios using the new copy, is there another way?
